As you can see from the trailer, this looks to be one bloody epic flick.

1917, the latest film by director Sam Mendes who was behind two James Bond films, Skyfall and Spectre, follows two young soldiers during the First World War on an impossible mission to deliver a message, deep in enemy territory, that will stop their own men from walking straight into a deadly trap.

Spanning 116 minutes long, the film was shot and made to appear as one continuous shot, and is not only getting tipped to win big at next year's Oscars, but is getting high praise from early reviews too. 

Check out some below.

The Times: 5 stars 

If that doesn't get you well fizzed up, we don't know what will.

1917 is set to be released in NZ on 9 January 2020.
